Does your toad color match your motorhome?

When it came time to buy a new toad, we picked a burgundy colored Honda CR-V to match a similar color in our motorhome paint scheme. Our old 2002 CR-V toad was silver, which didn't match the MH at all.
I'm just curious if anyone else would go to any effort to pick the color of a new toad based on their MH paint scheme.

We are currently looking for one that will match one of our accent colors. Then I can tell DW that we can't buy a new MH she wants because it won't match the toad.

Ours Wrangler matches the silver in part of the motorhomes motif. We had hoped whatever one we selected would match the toad purchased to match our previous motorhome.

Have you seen the toads that people have painted to exactly match not only the color but the graphics of their motorhome. I think they are pretty amazing looking but I can't see myself having it done. Maybe rather than painting one could own a white toad and have a wrap made to match the motorhome.

Not a perfect match but stayed neutral on the color.

Yes. My wife has to have everything match. Thus when we bought our current MH I had to get different toads to match the MH. I went with black toads to match the black accents on the MH and the black would go with almost any future MH. Took me a year to find the right black Rubicon. Had to go to Missouri to find the black CRV that I wanted. All's good for now.

I would think a custom paint job with graphics on the toad would look kind of strange when driving by itself

nope. the color of the MH is the one we liked when it was ordered as was the color of our jeeps. no thought was given to matching or contrasting colors. the MH is burgandy'ish while the jeeps are blue and red.

Yep, almost an identical match. 2013 CRV in the Urban Titanium and the Phaeton with the Sunlit Sand paint.

No color match here. And the jeep is usually much dirtier than the Motorhome.

No match here but I still like the black Jeep behind anything.
